Tim deciphers the map to figure out where to go next…icons show us the types of trails they have: important sites, beautiful scenery, or restaurants along the way!
A favorite pastime of the Germans is walking.  I had heard about the volksmarches that many villages host during the summer but I was surprised at the sheer number of people who enjoy walking as sport.  Many carry trekking poles to give them a boost in heart rate. However, I’ve noticed quite a few who simply drag the poles behind them as they walk leisurely on one of the many trails around Bavaria.
Occasionally, I meet up with some Army friends to take part in this pastime.  More often, I take Lady for a walk around my neighborhood. We have enjoyed watching the changing scenery, as summer moves into fall.
